Date:11/5/2009

a leading, clinically-proven, first-line therapy for POAG and a viable alternative to eye drops. We believe SRT has the potential to revolutionize retina therapy, similar to the way SLT revolutionized glaucoma management. This new study will help us ascertain that fact” concluded Mr. Diamond.

About the Clinical Trial:
The clinical trial will be conducted under the direction of Prof. Anat Loewenstein MD, who is an associate Professor of Ophthalmology & the Vice-Dean of the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at the Tel Aviv University, and the Director of the Department of Ophthalmology at the Tel Aviv Medical Center in Israel. The prospective study, which includes 102 patients (102 eyes), was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Lumenis Selective Retina Therapy (SRT) treatment in diabetic macular edema. The duration of the study is two years with patient follow up at 4, 8, and 12 months post-op.
All patients will receive treatments with the Lumenis SRT laser that was developed by Lumenis Ltd., in collaboration with its research partner MLL (Medizinisches Laserzentrum Lübeck) in Lübeck, Germany. Lumenis holds propriety rights for this technology.

About Selective Retina Therapy (SRT):
Selective Retina Therapy (SRT) is a relatively new laser technique which selectively targets the Retinal Pigment Epithelium (RPE) while sparing the neural retina. Several macular diseases are thought to be caused and/or significantly exacerbated due to reduced function of the RPE cells. In light of that, a method for the selective destruction of the underperforming RPE cells without causing adverse effects to the choroid and neurosensory retina (especially to the photoreceptors layers) is hypothesized to halt the progression of those diseases and/or reverse some of its deleterious effects.

The selective effect on RPE cells, which absorb about 50% of the incident light due to their high melanosome content, has been previousl
